Selvages in "Down Under Quilts" Magazine

Have you seen the new issue of Down Under Quilts from Australia? They're featuring selvages! Erica Spinks' authored the articles, and her beautiful selvage quilt is on the front cover. She used a solid beige fabric with her selvages, and she added hand quilting with black thread to echo the selvages. Terrific idea. This is the first selvage quilt to appear on the cover of a magazine!

Above, do you recognize my Tree of Life selvage quilt and Jodie Carleton's selvage frock? They also show Jodie's selvage chair on another page. Below see the selvage shopping sack by Linda Robertus.

Below, see my "Twilight Star" selvage quilt (left) and Linda Robertus' "Salvaged Selvedges" (right).

I picked up that magazine the other day, the articles were great, and the quilt on the cover looks very do-able, need to keep saving those selvedges!

Great work, ladies...will definitely check out the web version and will be in hot pursuit of a print issue (quite possible in the NY area). P.S. I love how the Aussies say "selvedge."

I just found your blog and what an honour that must be! I just ordered the 100 blocks in one magazine, and I understand you are in that too. You are super talented.

This one calls for more than a digital copy. I am going to get the hard copy. I love it all!
